The Enigma of Russian Dada

None One of the joys and pitfalls of modernism was its self-conscious assessment of the accepted traditions and norms of its social activities and its utter faith that those traditions could be uprooted and reshaped to suit bold new visions of future endeavor. Of course, those visions were often in conflict—hence, the two world wars on the one hand and the proliferation of "isms" in art, on the other. This infatuation with upheaval (as Karl Marx once put it, the awareness that "all that is soli...

The 12 Celebrity #10YearChallenge Photos That Blew Our Minds

When an internet challenge goes viral, people can usually expect the familiar cringe associated with watching teens eat cinnamon or people doing things they shouldn't be doing while blindfolded. But the latest challenge to grip social media is much more wholesome (we hope), and celebrities are especially obsessed with it.The #10YearChallenge is simple: post a photo of yourself in 2009 beside a current 2019 one. Many people have taken the opportunity to gloat and show off their agelessness. Othe...

Offset Is The Most Careful Off-White Model Ever

On Wednesday, Virgil Abloh presented his latest collection for his label Off-White during Paris Men's Fashion Week featuring a few familiar faces, like rappers Playboi Carti and Cardi B's (maybe, soon-to-be) ex-husband Offset who walked very slowly along the runway almost as if to say "do you see this coat?!" Abloh, King Hypebeast, dressed Kulture's father in an oversized maxi puffer coat with a built in crossbody fanny pack, graphic T-shirt, black pants, and dad sneakers. This isn't the first ...

Everything You Need To Know About Influencer Caroline Calloway & Her Disastrous $165 Mason Jar Meet-Up

When Caroline Calloway, a 27-year-old Instagram influencer and writer, abruptly cancelled her tour of creativity workshops scheduled across America, all eyes were watching. Her lofty endeavors had gained notoriety on Twitter after writer Kayleigh Donaldson began documenting what she felt were Calloway's ill-advised attempts to throw together a multi-city tour that promised teachings, lunch, care packages, and personalized letters for every attendee."This woman is a blatant scammer who's now org...

There is only one rule of makeup, which is that there are none. Foundation diehard? Allow us to direct you to our favorite ones. More the fiercely fresh-faced type? Here's the skin-care routine that will make you glow. We don't subscribe to the narrative that either one is better, or braver, than the other.That said, we've noticed an uptick in celebrities who have been jumping on the no-makeup train — led by the patron saint of cosmetics-free complexions, Alicia Keys.

Itzhak, Junior and Paul

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed violinist Itzhak Perlman for my "House Call" column in the Mansion section (go here). Itzhak and I talked about how his parents met after leaving Poland just before the German invasion and the day as a child that he woke and realized he had polio. Itzhak enjoys playing the violin while watching baseball with the sound down and loves hot dogs with just a bit of mustard and ketchup. Here he is on The Ed Sullivan Show at age 13 in 1958, a perf...

'The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle' Is a Stellar Mystery Yarn

None The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is Stuart Turton's debut novel, but one wouldn't know it's a debut, as it's incredibly polished and self-assured, and an utterly delightful yarn. When you learn that Turton is primarily a travel journalist, the ease and flow of the narrative make that much more sense. We open with an unnamed protagonist who has been shorn of his memories, stumbling in the woods around the mouldering English estate Blackheath sometime in the early 20th century, danger ...

Meghan Markle has already proved her fashion credentials by being the unofficial guest of honor at 2018's Fashion Awards, and presenting Givenchy designer Clare Waight Keller, the woman who made her wedding dress, with British Designer of the Year for Womenswear. Earlier today, though, the Duchess of Sussex used her love of fashion for a greater cause.At the north Kensington-based charity Smart Works, which provides long-term unemployed and vulnerable women with interview clothes and training, ...

How To Sell Out A Show [Kosha Dillz]

Indie rapper Kosha Dillz does it all pretty much himself. There's no agent, no label and only occasional help with marketing. Despite those obstacles he's carved out a touring career thanks to his impressive hustle and some tips he shares here. _____________________________________ Guest post by Kosha Dillz To be honest I have only sold out one show in my life as a headliner. It was in a seattle and I got to say some people wanted to play with me so bad after meeting me at wa...

Pawel Pawlikowski's 'Cold War' Is a Lustrous, Slyly Subversive Melodrama

None There's a true love guiding Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski's first film since 2015's Oscar-winning Ida. The truth isn't in the depth of the emotion, though, but in its blemished sincerity; it's a story about two lovers who stay involved, but not necessarily together, for 15 years, and who never truly convince each other (or us, as viewers) that love itself is enough. The film, set in 1950s Europe, is extravagant but unsentimental, and never strays far from the stark realities of wartime. Tha...

From Paris, with Poetry: On Henri Cole's 'Orphic Paris'

None Paul Valéry, the great French poet and critic, famously remarked that "poetry is to prose what dancing is to walking." His point was that poetry and prose are both forms of writing, but that their use of language is fundamentally different — one of them is artistic and the other is instrumental. When poets write prose, then, they are taking advantage of the instrumentality of the medium to do something that they can't quite do in their poetry: tell a story, flesh out a character, make an a...

Let’s put a Bluetooth speaker in concrete, said no one ever

Except someone actually did say that and then they made it and now you can own your very own concrete Bluetooth speaker AND it’s surprisingly pretty decent. It seems there’s a new Bluetooth speaker on the market every single day. You can get high quality speakers that could fill a stadium and cost over $2,000 or you can get a $15 stormtrooper head speaker that fits in the palm of your hand and can take selfies. It seems there’s no end to Bluetooth speaker manufacturing, but this concrete spe...

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

Deben Bhattacharya: Paris to Calcutta

None In many ways, musicologist Deben Bhattacharya stands as a direct predecessor to Sublime Frequencies, as one of the label's producers, Robert Millis, notes in his introduction to Paris to Calcutta: Men and Music on the Desert Road. While Sublime Frequencies' website states that its members are "dedicated to acquiring and exposing obscure sights and sounds from modern and traditional urban and rural frontiers", Bhattacharya refers in the notes to his 1956 LP to "a living tradition of folk mu...

Billy Eckstine: Mr. B in Paris

One of the least known albums recorded by singer Billy Eckstine is one of his best—Mr. B in Paris. Recorded for Britain's Felsted label while Eckstine was on tour in Europe between releases for Roulette, the album features the baritone singing 12 songs in French backed by the Bobby Tucker Orchestra. Mr. B in Paris was produced by Quincy Jones and arranged by Jones, Billy Byers and Bobby Tucker. The orchestra was recorded in Paris in 1957 while Eckstine's vocal was overdubbed in London in 1958. ...

listening to joni: #7: the hissing of summer lawns

The Hissing of Summer Lawns, 1975 Front and back covers:The landscapes of the songs Joni's seventh studio album (her ninth album overall) is both a continuation and a departure. The Hissing of Summer Lawns is rich and multi-layered, somewhat enigmatic, full of interesting images and sounds that are open to interpretation. When I'm in a certain mood, this becomes my favourite of all Joni's albums, surpassing even Court and Spark in my imagination, flooring me with its beauty and compl...

Michelle Obama’s Post-White House Fashion Is Proof Of How Liberated She Feels

While Michelle Obama’s entire Becoming book tour has been a delightful spectacle of fashion-forward outfits (Cushnie! Pyer Moss! Givenchy!), the former first lady’s wardrobe made quite a statement Wednesday on the final stop in Brooklyn. It was the thigh-high Balenciaga boots that signaled post-White House Michelle Obama, The Civilian, was finally relaxed after meticulously calculating her appearance for the last eight years. Eight years of scrutiny and policing that women who look like her are...

13 Spa Gifts That Are The Next Best Thing To An Actual Spa Day

As '90s kids, the first thing we'd put on our holiday wishlist was a sweet toy: Tamagotchis, Hit Clips, and Bratz dolls would get us beyond hyped when it was time to unwrap presents.Those were simpler times. As adults, our wishes — and needs — have changed. Frankly, being a grown-up is exhausting, and all we want to do these days is relax. Brunch dates, shopping trips, and cocktail hours would gladly be traded for a massage or trip to the spa. But every holiday season, that gets tougher: Betwee...

The 30 Best New Musical Artists of 2018

Amnesia Scanner Amnesia Scanner is the experimental electronic duo of Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala. Created in late 2013, the group is not exactly new, but they have remained somewhat unrecognizable and wholly inaccessible until this year. As they used to refuse interviews and released several unannounced, unexplained EP's and mixtapes, Amnesia Scanner floated around as illegible codes for devoted listeners to decipher. Every track title was prefaced by "AS", and each music video reg...

The 10 Best Fragrance Gifts For Difficult People

Everyone is difficult in their own way, which is why the myth of people who are "difficult to shop for" is not only patently ridiculous but, quite frankly, a bit rude. Unless the person you are shopping for is a child who has written out a list of the exact items they would like (or, more likely, provided the link to a running Amazon wishlist) or someone who collects something wildly specific (roosters or elephants for good luck, perhaps?), it is standard to have to put forth some effort to fin...

10 Artists You Need To Follow On Instagram Before Your Next Tattoo

Tattoos tend to be unique to the people getting them, but even the most creative minds have mood — and Instagram — boards filled with inspiration. Whether you love colorful, splashy designs or are more into minimal, dotted lines, there's nothing wrong with having a wandering eye for tattoos. The more you check out, the more ideas you'll get, the better your creation will come out.Of course, this isn't to say you or your artist will, or should, plagiarize others' work. However, we do suggest you...

John, Melvyn and Wanda

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed men's clothing designer and retailer John Varvatos for my "House Call" column in the Mansion section (go here). His designs always seem torn from the pages of rock magazines. John was born in a working-class suburb of Detroit and grew up listening to rock and thumbing through fan magazines. Which is how he developed an eye for the singular fashion trends of rock stars. After stints working for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, and time spent a...

The Best Movies For Getting Over Your Ex

Listen. Our goal here is simple: to help you curate the perfect Rolodex of movies that will help you deal if or when things with your loved one fall apart. And, to help us in our quest for catharsis, we’ve consulted the very academic Kübler-Ross model of handling grief, which divides the process into five stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance (because, above all else, we here at Refinery29 are nothing if not academics, of course).There are many different types of breakup...
